In Topic: It's gotta be asked....What's up with Hank?

My thoughts are that other teams are putting their top defenders against his line.  He is still our leading scorer (points).  This I believe is why the other lines are doing so well.  Our 2nd and 3rd lines are scoring better than our first.  I chalk this up to how the opposition is playing us.

In Topic: Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

I like the way the Wing's offense is working right now.  I can see trading for a top 4 right-shooting defenseman, or a really big and tough stay at home type.  I mention the latter because even Kindl could be a good offensive d-man if he had a strong defensive-minded partner.  Smith and Kindl both have offensive upside.  The line that's baffling me is Z's line.  They have been kept off the score sheet for a bit.  Now, I also believe that Z's line gets the opposition's best line, thus freeing up the talent we have on the other lines.  Our other 3 lines are taking advantage of it, too.  The last time I saw Detroit seriously roll 4 solid lines was in 2002.  I am trying to keep my excitement for this team in check, due to their inexperience however, other teams have yet to fully isolate all 4 lines.  As far as trade bait... for a right-shooting d-man, I'd trade Pulks and Kindl and a pick or so.  For a stay at home tough-guy, I'd trade Pulks and a pick.  Outside of that... I would keep this team the way it is.
